As the nation's finest co-ed maritime college, MMA challenges students to succeed by balancing a unique regimented lifestyle with a typical four-year college environment. As a member of the cadet corps you will live, study, sail, work and play in an atmosphere that encourages you to be your best.
Care and Action for Students Team (CAST)
The focus of Massachusetts Maritime Academy’s Care and Action for Students Team (CAST) is the care and concern for students who may be in distress. Our aim is to connect identified students with the resources and support needed to facilitate achievement of their personal and academic potential while at the Academy.
CAST meets biweekly throughout the fall and spring semesters. The team may also meet on an ad hoc basis if an urgent situation arises.
How to Make a Referral
Members of the Massachusetts Maritime Academy’s Community may refer students of concern to CAST by submitting the Referral Form. Once a referral is submitted, you will see an automated reply confirming that your referral has been received, and a member of CAST may contact you for additional information. Alternately, you can make a referral by contacting any member of CAST.
If a student poses an immediate risk of harm to self or others, please call 911 or Public Safety at 508-726-0798 or Extension 1025.
